Above is a cool video art piece called order-from-chaos by Maxime Causeret. He combines art and science in a very beautiful way. The theme of art and science have always been dance partners in my life. My theory about these two disciplines is they have the same goal in mind. They both try to explain their environment. So even though they start out at other sides of the spectrum, they end up in the same place. And when the two come together you get things like this piece, fractals and quantum theory.
Aries – Four of Wands – You are on to the next card in the suit of Wands – the Four – happy home. The Universe is giving you the okay to spend time at home. This is a great week to put away your Christmas decorations if they are still out, clean house, and add some fresh flowers to your dining room. This exercise is a reminder that the days are getting longer, so bring a touch of spring into your home.
Taurus – Knight of Swords – Okay, after last week’s basking in the “yummy,” you are now feeling 2017’s responsibilities piling up. The Knight of Swords reminds you that decisions made in haste come back to bite you in the kester. The lesson learned from this Knight is don’t let the world’s fast pace become your own. Slow it down.
Gemini – Queen of Wands – Last week, the Strength card suggested that you take a deep breath and ground yourself. The Queen of Wands has invited herself into your life. This week she has you continue your exercises in keeping your feet on the ground, but she is wanting your head back in philosophical land. She is suggesting you spend some time being creative to get there.
Cancer – King of Swords and Ace of Pentacles – The King of Swords has teamed up with the Ace of Pentacles to get the wheels turning for the New Year. This week your mind is your weapon to start working on that new project you have been contemplating. Use that amazing mind of yours to get that venture off the ground.
*Leo – The Chariot – Another big card for you this week. Last week, The Fool had you take your imagination on a walk to explore the big questions. With some of those answers in hand, The Chariot adds a sense of determination and self discipline to continue on your path. It is time to grab the reins and yell “Giddy-up” or just roll down your car window and scream “Yes!”
Virgo – Six of Wands – The Universe’s next word for you is self-confidence. The Universe will give you a lot of messages around this issue this week. The difficult thing will be to notice them. They will come in the form you might consider as subtle therefore inconsequential. They will look like a smile from the girl at the grocery, a friend saying thank you for listening, or someone holding the door open for you. The point being these “subtle” nods are really the beautiful way that friends and strangers acknowledge your “subtle” greatness.
Libra – Three of Wands – The Three of Wands is the card of planning and patience. The goal this week is to plan, procure resources, and patiently wait for the world to catch up. The Three of Wands reminds you that you cannot control every aspect of life. You can only plan for the future the best you can with the resources at hand.
Scorpio – Page of Swords – Now that your imagination has been lit up, the Page of Swords is wanting you to do some investigation. This week is all about gathering information. It is not a week of doing. Take time to find out all you need to know before going ahead on any project.
*Sagittarius – The Fool – Last week Judgment asked you to be honest with yourself and your resolutions would be more solidly based. Now, with those more obtainable and candid resolutions in hand, The Fool cleans your slate and starts moving you into the new year. The only thing The Fool asks you to bring is your sense of humor. “Easy peasey lemon squeezey” because, as a Sagittarius, you love a good joke even if you directed it at yourself.
Capricorn – Five of Cups – You are moving on to the next number in the suit of cups. In your pondering last week, you have come to realize that it can be pretty easy walking away from the things that don’t work, but you are finding that it is still hard to figure out what you want to bring forward. Look at things that you don’t hate but are still useless. It is those neutral objects that you need to let go of this week.
*Aquarius – The Devil – The Devil brings another week of tests trying to get you to lose your focus on your TRUE goals. Last week, the environment tried to pull you in with its chaos. This week, The Devil will try to divert you with more tempting and tasteful treats. This can look like people bring in sweets to the office to entice you from your resolution of no sugar in January. Or, when your good friends come to town for the weekend, you imbed too much in the beverage department and the next day skip exercising. So, in all things, moderation and self discipline are the key.
*Pisces – Ten of Swords and The Emperor – Two card week for you all. The Ten of Swords warns you that shit can hit the fan this week if you do not listen to your intuition. The Emperor card is here to help you get out of this sticky wicket. First, these two cards tell you to check your hubris. A good ruler checks his ego at the door and listens to the people around him. Then, a good Emperor makes a plan and sticks to it. So, this week do not do anything on the fly. If you need to reassess – pull back, adjust, then start up again.
May light be on you, around you, and within you,
